on your own field experience in places that might be similar. and astrobiologist at nasa ames described it this way. they had these huge charts on the wall, engine drawings of the rover. with all of these dimensions, we would have some geometric question. well, can we see this? can we reach that? is this rock going to be in shade, or will it be in the sun? we would go and we would stand and stare at those charts. and overtime we stopped doing it so much because we begin to gain a sense of the body. that's projecting your self into the rover. it's just an amazing capability of the human mind that you can sort of retool your self. so acting through the robots they controlled, the scientists look around, they manipulate materials and they move over the landscape. they may pretend to be the rover crouching down and gesturing with an arm to better and imagine what is reachable. and through the eyeglasses of special cameras they can directly see iron minerals in the rocks. they are transformed in a way to the kind of cyborg on mars. now, that's all pretty different from doing field science. t
